About the name — Durga Rani Singh — Sujoy thinks that they have really liked the name so they kept it.

Here are 5 surprising revelations by Vidya:
On chemistry with Sujoy:
Sujoy and I love fighting with each other, so either we are really fighting or we are really working hard at making a film. So the moment we started talking we did two films back to back Te3n and Kahaani 2.
On no make-up look:
Sujoy wanted that the look should be realistic and my makeup artist specialises in this no makeup look. Sujoy wanted a certain dryness to the skin, that’s how Sujoy saw Durga Rani Singh and that’s why the no-make up look. I don’t have any problem with makeup.
On pressure for Kahaani 2:
We always knew that Kahaani 2 will be compared to the fist part but Sujoy and I made it very clear that we will take this as a new film. We will not take any pressure. I, certainly, believe Kahaani was a good film, but this one is a new Kahaani and we have approached it in a different manner.
On women-centric films
I don’t take the owner of making women-centric films, but I would like to talk about writer Sujoy Gosh who wrote Kahaani, and Milan Luthira and Rajat Arora who wrote The Dirty Picture. I can just say that I am lucky to be at the right place at the right time.
On being an action queen:
I love hitting, punching and kicking. I get very few opportunities to do that, especially when you have to do it to a man, its lot of fun.
